Now flagship iPads also hitting 2k mark with accessories. Zz. Last time flagship ipad like 1.1k only
More premium materials and larger screens all contribute to the cost. Now even the casings have leather ones.

I don't think I'll get the keyboard when I get my Pro, just the pencil will do.

How is this entry level ipad 9.7” saw the 32GB WIfi is only S$478 or S$498 only.

Wanted to explore tablet to be use for office work and let users view pdfs and also some machine specification.

Brief checks tha tthis 32GB 9.7 is much lower than a Samsung S3 9.7”, where cheapest also at about S$688 to S$788.

As for the ipad pro smart keyboard. If you do quite a lot of typing, I would say the SKB really feels good. Response is superb, just that the clicking sounnd is quite irritating when you are typing away. If simply browsing, maybe just the ipad is good enough.. and apple pencil if you does sketching or notes taking.. and the pencil price drops by S$10 (I think).

If they throw in Apple Pencil then worth. Else with misery of 32gb cannot install much apps siaz.. Apple should default least 64gb now given by their status!
$498 for A10 + Apple pencil support is totally worth it. Price for student is $468.

Lol! That is why I told everyone. Apple is a premium product. It is not for everyone. For me, I am happy with the new iPad

If all these for $299, it'll be snapped up within minutes and I'll happily buy 2 sets in a heartbeat. I've been an Apple user since the first gen iPod Shuffle (also my very first Apple product) and have bought numerous Apple products ever since. If Apple products are that cheap, it would've saved me tons of money and Apple will also close shop.

I'm awaiting for this year's iPad Pro refresh, so have to wait until after WWDC in June.

I know it does but adds to the bulk. My dream setup will be the 10.5" iPad Pro (or this year's update) with smart keyboard, TG screen protector and Apple's silicon case (no need leather one) and the pencil.

All the additional stuffs can easily add over $500 to the iPad's cost.

Even my mini 4's laminated screen looks better than the new iPad.
I am still using the iPad mini 2, its non-laminated screen does not bother me much. It is still a very good display for my daily use.
